and california and some of the other blue states. that's part of why the national polls might not be that great an indicator. >> these national states haven't seen the advertising, haven't seen the campaigning, haven't seen the targeted messaging. that's where the president's team has built the operation that they think will allow them to go from tied nationally to a little bit of an advantage. >> it depends which poll you look at. most of them show mitt romney has a lead among independents. if you're the romney campaign is that your reason for optimism tonight and tomorrow? >> three reasons to be optimistic. one is in a lot of polls, they're doing betting with independents. in a state like ohio, the candidate who wins independents usually wins. david axelrod such as much on the show last week. an incumbent below 50% at 47%, 48%, you have to think you might lose. and third is, ever reporter who's been out in the last week with the candidates has seen there's a lot of enthusiasm on the republican side. i'm not saying there's not enthusiasm for the president. there is. it's not at the level of 20

to other races in the country where they could target rick hubble -- republicans. california there have been two factors, which was to turn the congressional map on its head. we are almost able to ignore california even though it is the biggest day, and maybe watch one or two seats. now we're watching a dozen seats to see which party takes control. when it comes to the senate, if you look at the northern part of the country, if you look at montana, north dakota, indiana, and wisconsin, all four of those races are in our categories, and republicans need to win all four of them if they have any hope of getting the majority. in each one of those that they lose, the chance the republicans will gain back control decreases for the perry >> will there be anything that surprise you? our job is toj avoid as many surprises as process. in hopes of we will avoid a surprise, but i would be surprised if there is not a surprise, particularly on the house side. the presidential battleground, i think the senate battle ground, states we know come on the house side, but almost expect there to be a surpris

that every vote should count. on the other hand, you would not want texas, california, or new york to determine what the whole country should move forward on. i believe that the electoral college is outdated. i am an independent voter. i voted for clinton back in the day, and i have voted for bush. i voted for obama last time. i am from ohio, but not everyone from ohio is in the unions. there are a lot people out of work here. i am really upset with the fact that mitt romney has not released his tax returns. that bothers me a great deal. but i feel like i got snowed by obama. he does not appear to be a good leader, watching these debates. it looked like he did not want to be there. the last debate, when he made a snide comment about the bayonet, i thought to myself -- is that how you are dealing with the republican party? that attitude? if someone has a nonchalant attitude, that they will talk to me in a condescending manner, i would not want to do with you, either. host: finish your thought? caller: my brother is in the army. he is fixing to go to afghanistan in june. benghazi rea
democratic state. california used to be part of a so-called republican lock. so, you know states change. any given point they're going to be some small subset of states where it is closely argued but over time i think maybe all the states get a chance in the spotlight. jenna: change is the only constant, right? >> exactly. jenna: imagine an election about issues. >> we can't have that. jenna: we have a lot more to talk about. we already do, walter, great to have you on set with us. jon? jon: well it is all about the swing states in the race for the white house. we are now minutes away from president obama's rally in wisconsin. you're looking live at madison, wisconsin. guess who is on stage, the boss, bruce string steen. this comes amid controversy over comments the president made in another battleground state. telling voters there voting is the best revenge. governor romney has an answer to that, we'll take a fair around balanced looks coming up i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i looked at my
they will continue to have seen a power. darrell issa the congressman from california in my view will exercise that to a greater degree. you will see a lot of intense followup on stories solyndra-like crony capitalism. it will make it hard for him to do anything. >> i think it's likely. if you were making predictions today you would say it is likely republicans will maintain control of the house. given that the president will be in a second term that we are going to face an immense fiscal challenge going forward in terms of the deficit. i think one more legacy point i would raise is the president has spoken about doing something about the pressures on the middle class. the growing gap between high-end earners and people getting left behind and that's why he talked about the investments he wants to make in education. one of my great hopes would be that he would be more open to taking risks, getting some flack from the teachers unions and do something about the quality of american schools. that's something that would move my heart. megyn: do you think he's likely to be more bipartisan or will he
